Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology
The Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology (also known as M&T) is a joint-degree program offered at the University of Pennsylvania for undergraduates.
About the program
M&T is known for its high selectivity and rigorous academic curriculum at the undergraduate level, integrating aspects of both the business and the technical worlds. The majority of program graduates choose careers in either investment banking or management consulting upon graduation, though a number follow other career paths in the technology, nonprofit, entrepreneurial and medical professions.
Applicants are asked to submit an additional essay as part of their application package to the University of Pennsylvania, and acceptance rates for the program are among the lowest of any department or program at the university. The current target freshman class size for the program is approximately 50 to 55 students with five slots available annually for Wharton and Engineering students wishing to transfer into the program at the end of their freshman years. Transfers from other universities into the program are not possible.
The majority of M&T students complete the program in four years. Students generally take five or six classes per semester, whereas the average Penn student takes four or five. Many alumni return to graduate school at Wharton or elsewhere to pursue MBA degrees after gaining work experience.
